First ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Clip: What’s In The Bag?

by Ryan Rigley

Peter Parker has a wide array of problems. Be they supervillain-related, teenage angst-related, or J. Jonah Jameson-related, the poor guy just can’t seem to catch a break.

In this very first clip from “The Amazing Spider-Man,” even Gwen Stacy’s doorman proves problematic for the web-slinging superhero.

Seems like Peter Parker’s backpack has been quite the hot topic as of late. Everyone is dying to get a look at what’s inside. Well, we here at MTV News got a sneak peek just last week. Nothing too out of the ordinary for a high school student. But from the looks of the new clip, it appears that our backpack was missing one very key item: Spider-Man’s costume.

How exactly is Spidey going to get past that nosey nuisance of a doorman? Our guess is that he’ll do whatever a spider can, i.e. scaling the side of the building, web-zipping up to the roof, etc. But who knows? Maybe Gwen Stacy will come to the rescue and vouch for ol’ webhead moments before the doorman can open his bag.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” is being described as Peter’s journey from awkward high school student to friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. It will also prominently feature Gwen Stacy, as Peter’s first major high school crush. Together, the two must struggle their way through young love and the commitment issues that come with being a secret superhero. At the same time, Peter must also deal with the huge reptilian monster that has been terrorizing New York City.

Equal parts romance and action/adventure, “The Amazing Spider-Man” swings into theaters nationwide on July 3rd.
